Political Science Speaker Series—Attitudes toward automation and the demand for policies addressing job loss: the effects of information about trade-offs
September 26, 2022 at 12:00 pm - 1:30 pmFree
The Department of Economics, Philosophy and Political Science invites you to attend the Political Science Speaker Series.
Join Dr. Beatrice Magistro’s talk titled Attitudes toward automation and the demand for policies addressing job loss: the effects of information about trade-offs.
Does providing information about the costs and benefits of automation affect support for automation and for different policies in response?
To answer this question, Dr. Beatrice will use a combination of survey and conjoint experiments across four advanced economies (Australia, Canada, the UK, and the US).
